What: Mobile Work Week
When: December 5th – 9th, 2011
Where: Various venues in Bay Area, CA
The Internet has changed many industries for the better, and the workspace is no exception. With the arrival of today’s sharing economy – brought about by advancements in mobile computing, widespread smartphone adoption and the idea that we can do more with less – Mobile Work Week is championing a new way of getting things done.
Today, there is a new and growing ecosystem that includes revolutions in everything from the places we work, to the way companies view real estate, to the way workspaces are physically designed, to the role of the community in supporting sustainable economic development.
Moreover, there is an emerging collaborative community growing across businesses and industries. Mobile Work Week is all about connections – connecting workers to spaces, spaces to designers, designers to city planners, and more.
“Industry is reorganizing itself around a new paradigm: mobility, and Mobile Work Week is all about celebrating and connecting the entire ecosystem, each and every person that makes mobile working such a reality here,” said LiquidSpace founder and CEO, Mark Gilbreath. “We’ve been especially focused here in the Bay Area and we can’t wait to celebrate with the community here.”
More details will be released, but highlights of the week include GigaOm’s Net:Work on Thursday, an intimate fireside chat, a special opening presentation by Mayor Ryan Coonerty and other special guests during a venue crawl, a developer-focused panel, and a LiquidSpace closing party. Panels and presentations will explore opportunities and challenges around today's mobile worker, addressing important issues to ensure success as we enter into this new way of working.
